The 2020 Special Education Legislative Summit (SELS) is going virtual and you’re invited to be part of it! This summit is co-sponsored by the Council of Administrators of Special Education (CASE) and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). It is a great opportunity for sponsors to reach out to special education professionals as they work together to bring the key issues from our classrooms to Capitol Hill. From July 13-24, over 1,000 professionals are expected to participate in our virtual summit, which will be our 19th summit overall. Our voices are unified, and our words are strong, but we need assistance from our partners in the educational services community to make this event happen! The following sponsorship activity is available:
- All event sponsorship – $3,000
- A 30-second video provided by the sponsor will be shown to all participants at the beginning of one of the hour-long webinars – see tentative schedule
- Acknowledgement with logo on the SELS website
- Logo on each email that goes out to SELS attendees – multiple emails in preparation for the event will be sent!
- An email will be sent to all SELS attendees by CEC from each sponsor with content of their choice upon completion of the summit
We appreciate all the effort, time, and money you invest in supporting our professional organizations, and it is our hope to always make it as profitable as possible for you and your company! We are committed to success for everyone.
